DestinyQuest Contest!

The creators of DestinyQuest Infinite have a new contest going on in which participants design an item based on folklore or mythology–and the lucky winner will receive a copy of their game with their item included! The deadline for submissions is June 29, so get those creative juices flowing!
More details below:

We’re holding a contest for our upcoming game, DestinyQuest Infinite, and we’d love a chance to spread the news! 
Here’s some info about it:
To enter, participants must write the name and description of an item for the game. You don’t need to be familiar with DestinyQuest to take part! DestinyQuest frequently draws on fairy tales and mythology, so the item must be inspired by a fairy tale or myth – but which one, and from which culture, is entirely up to the participant.
One winner will get a copy of the game, and have their item included in it, with credit and a link. If we receive more than 20 entries, a runner up will be selected as well.
Last day to enter is June 29.
For more information, the full rules, and instructions on how to enter, please visit the contest page: http://destinyquestinfinite.com/contest/

Interactive fiction combines games and literature… but what about games and other kinds of art? One artist takes on the challenge of fusing games and art in a series depicting well-known pieces as 8-bit paintings, as seen in this article.

It seems that predicting the future really is possible–for some notable sci-fi authors, that is. The Outlet, Electric Literature’s blog, offers this handy graphic showing where sci-fi authors got it right.

For April Fool’s Day, xkcd offered an interactive comic in which readers can make decisions and even add their own suggestions at the end. It offers xkcd’s classic mix of the funny and the fantastic.
